Busy Hands and Hearts for Our Community in December
We had a Women’s Christmas Fellowship Gathering at Alicia’s home. Instead of exchanging gifts, we decided to purchase and donate baby items for Today’s Choice Pregnancy Center in Newton, NJ.
Busy Hands and Hearts for Our Community in November
THANKSGIVING… a time to give thanks to our ever faithful God and a time to share His blessings with others.
Together with Newfoundland U.M.C. we provided 30 Thanksgiving baskets for local families. This mission work has been collaborated with our Sunday school children supported by Holy Faith Family for years.
Thank you from the Market Street Mission:
A big thank you to the Gloria Dei Guild and to those members of the Congregation who donated clothes and toiletries to the men of Market Street Mission. The Guild was able to bring 8 HUGE bags of donations to our LWML Fall Rally to be brought to the Mission, what a blessing!
LWML 2021-2023 PRIMARY FOCUS
- Proclaiming Christ
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all peoples! (Psalm 96:3).
- Supporting Missions
And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation (Mark 16:15).
- Equipping Women
Now may the God of peace … equip you with everything good that you may do his will (Hebrews 13:20–21).
- Serving Others
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another (1 Peter 4:10a).
